Stunning Photograph of Signed Woven Textile , Newly Framed (Two of Two)

Regular price $250.00

In addition to the early 19th century embroidered bird on paper listed today, this (and its mate) is the other Brimfield find purchased thinking of absolutely no one but myself, and I am very taken with it. At first, I thought it was an actual textile inside the frame--the photograph is that rich, and seems to me it might be an albumen photo, but I can't tell for sure. I love that the image makes its subject (and what a beautiful textile it is, I would think c. 1920s-40s?) feel that present and palpable. And I always love the translation of a thing from one medium to another, and how that shift changes perceptions of it, here making it quite impossible to know the scale--a full scale rug or a small weaving?  There is a W woven in at lower right, I presume is a signature of sorts--appearing also in the other, listed separately) but has lead me nowhere. For me, the whole thing hovers in a great sort of in between, holding both presence and absence in perfect balance, and mystery too.

Framed: 20 1/4" x 16 1/4". Photo: 13 3/4" x 9". Very good condition, very recently framed, archival matte, etc. Photos do no justice, with plenty of glare and reflection captured.
